, but cooper acknowledged that the country's understanding of marriage is changing rapidly, he says evolution should continue without the supreme court's interference. as mother jones put it, cooper was supposed to argue that california had a legitimate interest other than simple bigotry in banning same-sex couples in getting married. he difficult finding one. cooper found that marriage is about pro creation, but justice elena kagan challenged this argument. >> if you arory the age of 55, you don't help us serve the government's interest in regulating pro creation, through marriage so why is that different? >> your honor, even with respect to couples over the age of 55, it is very rare that both couples -- both parties to the relationship are infer tile. >> i can assure you if both the women and man are over 55, there are not a lot of children coming out of that marriage. >> a lesson in fertility. justice stephen breyer acknowledged, there are a lot of people who get married who can't have children. and what of the same-couples who do have children? cooper argued harm could be done to them an
the change of a latitude. >> why are you so confident in that attitude? how many states permit gay couples to marry? >> today? nine, your honor. >> nine. so there has been this sea change between now and 1996? >> i think with respect to the understanding of gay people and their relationship, i think there is a sea change. >> i suppose the sea change has a lot to do with the force and effectiveness of people supporting your side of the case? >> the chief justice of the united states supreme court also faulted president obama for enforcing doma but not defending it. >> if he has made a determination that executing the law by enforcing the terms is unconstitutional, i don't see why he doesn't have the courage of his convictions and execute, not only the stat us, but do it consistent with his view of the constitution, rather than saying we will wait until the supreme court says we have no choice. >> the white house says they enforce plenty of laws he doesn't agree with. >> the justices were not leaving much drama there. but i can tell it you who has been silent in washington this week and that

have opinion of republicans has changed and there are people still like john mccain who are very pro-military, but, you know, but that's no longer where the weight of opinion in the republican party is. >> that's a good point. >> the difference here is that you can support the military. you can insist that nothing ever take away from our military readiness. you can demapped that no cut ever impedes anyone on the frontline, and acknowledge that the pentagon -- i mean, the pentagon budget grows exponentially every year. you could acknowledge that you can trim from that budget. now, no one suggested that the military cuts were artful, strategic, or wise. they simply said that if the sequester is going to happen, we're not going to raise taxes again because we have such an objection to the way -- but, i mean, let me just say, no republican is pleased with the way that the military cuts were crafted in the sequester. they simply prefer to have the sequester happen than to raise taxes again 12 weeks later. >> that in and of itself i think is a change. they would rather go for inartful meat
on something like gay rights opinions are changing fast. on the other side of that question, how cognizant are the justices of how their actions shape the country's view of the court? the country's view of that institution that they represent and its legitimacy in our system of government. a couple of months ago former justice sandra day o'connor did a interview in parade magazine of all place in which she was asked about public approval ratings for supreme court justices. public approval of the justices had dropped from something like two-thirds, roughly 66% in the late 1980s down to 44% now. justice o'connor responded by saying she thought that drop was disturbing, and that, quote, i thinkurmre may have been a turning point. she publishes a remarkable photograph that have i not seen anywhere else before i saw it in this book. it's taken on inauguration day this 2001. justice o'connor, her husband on the right, justice scalia and chief justice rehnquist are waiting for the inauguration of george w. bush to start. an inauguration made possible by virtue of the decision bush v. gore. and i
. could your life in the air about to be changed? we have a special report. let's go out front. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. cold feet on gay marriage. could the supreme court be having second thoughts of taking up the lightning rod issue? today protesters and gay rights supporters swarming the steps of the supreme court and inside the justices were listening to the arguments. bullet point by bullet point. for and against. california's ban on same-sex marriage. that's the so-called proposition 8. the justices have the power to make gay marriage the law of the land. currently, it's actually only the law in nine states and washington, d.c. if you go straight from that to all 50, well, that's a really big edict from the high court and some justices sounded wary of issuing such a broad ruling. >> on a question like that, of such fundamental importance, why should it not be left for the people? either acting through initiatives and referendums or through their elected public officials? >> well, others like justice kennedy questioned why they were hearing the case in the first
now, given this situation and how this has dramatically changed now. >> ed lavendera, thanks.clerica things may have kept eric ebel from killing the prison chief. a clerical error led to ebel being released almost four years too early. he was serving an eight-year prison sentence in 2005, he hit a prison guard and got four more years for that assault, but those year were never actually that tacked on to his sentence. texas authorities believe ebel shot and killed the colorado prisons chief. >>> christians around the world are celebrating easter. catholics in jerusalem prayed at the church of the holy sepulchre. that site is bereaved by many to be the site where jesus was crucified. in honduras, people blocked off the streets and made an eelaborate carpet out of sawdust. at the end of holy week, catholic processions walk over the carpets and the images are erased. in the philippines, a realistic reenactment of the passion of the christ. you can see here, men flogging themselves. and here's the crucifixion, these men have actual nails through their hands and feet. one man who p
was forever changed. >> reporter: the prime suspect, evan ebel, a recent parolee who was killed in a shoot-out with police texas two days later. late today, police say ballistic tests show the gun he used in texas was the same one used to kill tom clements. >> this is an exact match, it has been confirmed. >> reporter: law enforcement sources say they expect he also killed a pizza delivery man to use his uniform as a disguise as he approached clements' home. ebel was a member of the 211 crew. abc news has learned tom clements thought the gang was too strong and to break it up, he ordered members sent to different institutions. investigators are now interviewing inmates to see if the gang ordered a hit on clements. in recent years, experts say all tra violent white supremacist gangs, like the 211 crew and the arian brotherhood, the subject of this national geographic investigation, have expanded their criminal enterprises outside the prison walls, selling drugs and running guns, all directed from behind bars. >> they devised all kinds of codes. the letter may look benign, but it's directing
and paste change. it is it just changed and sauled a sacrament. it reassuring that pope francis's version of being modern is not retooling the church to be more cool but take the unchanging gospel and advance by personal relationship than religious ritual. when i was in israel last month urn ared to the place thatthought to be the tomb much jesus. both sites had one thing in common. they were empty. as a christian who celebrates easter, it is not important to be adored by the world but to be known to be the one who conquered death and invites us to be with him. for the jews, pass overreminds us that god never forgets us. he overcomes all obstackles to set us free. having hope and confidence regardless election indicators makes me crazy so be it. i rather be crazy and confident than just plain crazy.

is that the law on this type of issue, especially as it relates to material support of terrorism, actually changed in 2006 and so it may be that they won't be able to reach back because the constitution and try him before that time. let's listen to one constitutional law expert i spoke with. >> until now, we thought that we could try them under these charges in the military commission system and it looks like it's not going to turn out that way which means that material support charges can be tried in the federal court system as they always have and they are highly successful in terms of bringing indictments and in terms of bringing convictions. >> so, wolf, we expect to hear a lot more about this suspect tomorrow with that presentment in federal court in new york city. >> we'll see who represents him in that as well in federal court. thank you very much, joe johns. let's dig deeper with senator ron wyden of oregon. he's a member of the intelligence committee. your immediate reaction that we learned to the news today. you may have learned about it longer than we did. what do you think of the decis
and have you changed your mind about him. >>> this is "piers morgan live." the first full day for pope francis begins with private prayer. he was at the main basilica for about 30 minutes before turning to the sistine chapel for his first mass, in italian. he asked the cardinals to have courage and said the church must move forward, a job that begins in earnest now that he's in charge. my first guests have a lot to say about the new pope and that's just for starters. mia farrow and martin sheen, hollywood icons, devout catholics and political activists. they join me now along with an impressive young man, craig kielburger who began the organization free the children. welcome to you all. i'm very excited about this. mia farrow, martin sheen making their debuts on "piers morgan live," two of my favorite actors in history. how about that. >> thank you. thank you. >> i don't want to blow too much smoke in your direction but let's just get that out of the way straight away. given that we're all catholic, all four of us are catholics. we will start with the pope. it was a momentous day yeste
been an attitude change? >> there has definitely been an attitude change in south carolina. and we see it moving rapidly, as a matter of fact. now south carolina is a state that does not -- does not allow same-sex marriage. but we'll see where that takes us in ten years. there is a definite movement, a definite change of attitude in south carolina, yes. >> okay. let's say you win the primary, and then it's, of course, i would pick maybe mark sanford on the other side. i don't know what the polling is there, but it would certainly be great to see you defeat him. could you defeat him? >> well, ed, let me be really clear about something first. we have got to get through the first primary, march 19th. and i do have -- i do have a competitor, as you mentioned. and so right now this campaign is focused on getting through that primary, getting the vote out, and winning the democratic seat. and as you so aptly mentioned, there are so many republicans at this point that we have no idea who is going to shake out. and until that shakes out, we're going to keep our eye on the prize. >> all right.
. >> the fact of the matter is the white house is changing how they're doing their outreach. this is different. almost everyone admitted after the dinner that it was more productive because the republican leadership was not in the room. in an interview with speaker boehner, who doesn't want to lose his job, pretty much agreed. >> so no more big top down deals, no more obama-boehner top-down deals or really -- >> those haven't worked very well if you've watched over the last few years. >> i understand. a lot of people would like a deal. >> yeah, but i don't think it's the way to get to one. listen, two people hiding behind closed doors doesn't replicate a 535 members of congress or the wisdom of 535 members of congress. >> right now there are actually some members of the republican leadership who prefer that the bargaining work this way, that the outreach is to the rank and file first, and then they bring in leadership. today the president's outreach continues. he's invited house budget committee chairman paul ryan for lunch at the white house. ryan will of course be rolling out his budget next
that the years old, that dinosaurs and people occupied the same time. change. i mean, they've got people like preppers and birthers and god knows whatnot over there. to believe when rand paul says that -- by the way, freedomworks, you remember this clown outfit, paid dick armey an million severance and they get papers out and everything? they're supporting rand paul to the nth degree. for one minute that he doesn't have deep support with all these cockamamie conspiracy theories he's got going and blowing people up in restaurants in houston and bedrooms in bowling green. >> it is so over the top it's outrageous. i've never heard a senator theorize like that on the floor before. ed, you've got ten house members that are on birther bills. you had half the republican presidential field in 2008 denying evolution. i mean, this isn't just some kind of nutty thing -- this is a party -- i'm not saying all of them. but vast numbers believe in some of the weirdest stuff that you can imagine. >> yeah. well, he's definitely playing with his imagination to think -- what's he think, that the military's goin
that was so offensive and who shot the secret video that changed the course of history? good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the 47% video changed the course of the 2012 presidential election. the romney campaign scamabled to address the candid comments, but the proof was on the video. governor romney was not concerned with the middle class in this country or the poor in america. for months, the identity of the person who shot the video remained a mystery. over the next hour, you will hear his story. right now, you will find out just who he is. what is your name and what are you all about? >> my name is scott prowdy. i'm a regular guy, middle class, hard working guy. you know, i think i would like to think i have a good moral compass and a core and i have a little empathy, a little more than mitt romney had. i don't know how i would describe myself, but i was behind this whole thing. i was bar tending that night for the romney fund-raiser. >> let's talk about may 17th. what happened that day? >> we got there, you know, it was a, you know, a political fund-raiser. we did
to say this is my friend, but it changes the definition of what it means to be a friend. and that's it seems to me what supporters of proposition 8 are saying here. all you're interested is the label and you insist on changing the definition of the label. >> it's like saying you can vote, you can travel, but you cannot be a citizen. there are certain labels in this country that are critical. you could have said in the loving case, you can't get married, but you can have an interracial union. everyone would know that was wrong. >> john roberts and ted olson arguing about whether this "marriage" label means something, or if you can have first-class citizenship while the state still bans you from having that label, that one thing. if you wanted to know today if there was any good old fashioned homophobic ignorance in the court, yes, there was, on the wings of a dove named antonin scalia. he was trying to help out the lawyer arguing the anti gay rights side. he starts out trying to help the lawyer and goes right off the cliff. >> mr. cooper, let me give you one concrete thing. why don
suppose you can force the child to say, this is my friend, but it changes the definition of what it means to be a friend. that's, it seems to me, what supporters of proposition 8 are saying here. all you're interested in is the label. and you insist on changing the definition of the label. >> wow. gavin newsom. thank you for joining us. >> i didn't get that fully. i was thinking back five years ago when i fell in love, you know, with my wife now, jen. if i sat on my knee and said, honey, i want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you civil union me? i'd be here with a scar. the point being, that label means a tremendous amount. that symbol, marriage is what it's about. you can't have something else and call it equal. i mean, that's the whole argument against civil unions. they are something else. so with respect to chief justice, i just don't think he gets that. >> that argument was made by our cardinal who asked a small group of journalists. the word gay went from fred astaire gay to having a good time to being a homosexual. words change their meanings. >> to say it has no meanin

of the core aviation security changes triggered by the 9/11 attacks. after al qaeda terrorists used box cutters to kill flight crews and hijack four jetliners, the u.s. government banned all knives on planes. over the last 12 years, millions of knives have been confiscated at airport security check points. now the ban is being relaxed. effective april 25, air travelers will be permitted to carry small pocket knives, provided the blades are no longer than 2.36 inches and no wider than half an inch. box cutters, larger knives and those with locking blades and molded grips will still be banned. flight attendants warn even the smaller knives present a threat inside the passenger cabin. stacey martin represents southwest airlines flight attendants. >> they're allowing these items to come through, and they're putting the responsibility of the cabin completely on us even though they know coming through security are these items. >> reporter: but the transportation security administration argues the change brings u.s. regulations in line with international safety rules, permitting small knives.
through changes of entitlements and repeal of obama care. it balances the budget in tense years without raises taxes. it was says under that proposal, they'll spend $41 billion. under our proposal, it will increase by 3.4% because the u.s. economy will grow faster than spending, the budget will balance by 2023. and debt held by the public will drop to over half the size of the economy. it does that by repealing obama care and that is going to have a very difficult time, especially with the administration and also in the senate. we're going to talk more about budget debate in a few minutes. then at 8:00 eastern time, we'll be joined by tom price. he is one of a handful of republicans who prose part of the van pollen. and then 8:120 eastern time. first, snow, scott wapner is here with some of the morning's other headlines. >> nice to say you. at&t is going to begin consumer and corporate presales of the blackberry's e-10 today. meantime, samsung is set to release its latest smartphone. yum brands reporting an unexpected 2% rise in profits. take a look at shares of yum. there you see the s

it a federal crime to move guns unlawfully against state line and changing things on books there. something people will talk about as a success if that gets through. so much focus on background checks. one of the big questions from people who are still hesitant about that is what would it actually do in a practical sense if you've got a neighbor-to-neighbor selling a weapon or a family member to another and how would that work in practical terms. the idea of background checks has broiad support but it gets down to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see

of a movement to change the way americans think about guns. welcome to you both. read about you in "the new york times." a fascinating place to start this debate as far as you're concerned because you don't like using the phrase "gun control." maybe that's the most inflammatory part of this debate, the word "control." you prefer to use "safety." tell me about evolve and what the purpose is. >> the purpose of evolve is to become an aspirational brand, something that lives above some of the chatter or if you can think about being more transformational. a lot going on out there is very important but it's incremental, and in order to change culture, we're reframing the conversation. you have to come at it from a different perspective. >> how are you going to change the way americans think about guns? >> well, i think if you go back to just being consistent with culture, culture is really what makes things change and stick in america. so if you take gun control, which you brought up, control versus freedom. control is counterculture. it's not american. freedom is american. that is a bad, bad, you kno
